RE: Externals for a single file - usage?

From what I have read about the file level externals you need the
project with the external in it check out in a WC and there is some
client side stuff that goes on there.

Subject: Externals for a single file - usage?


The need to use external to bring in a single file to my working copies
arose today and fortunately this was implemented in 1.6 - which I've now
upgraded to.


The problem I have is that I still get an error when updating with my
new external property set. I'm using the same format I use for bringing
in external folders but perhaps I need to do something else? I'm afraid
the latest version of the svnbook only mentions that single file
externals are possible but no specifics on implementation.


I have a web application checked out as a working copy. From the root of
that checkout, I have a folder called Website/bin into which I wish to
drop a shared library file into. The bin folder itself is not in source
control but it's parent "Website" is.


So the file I want is:


.dll - which is a valid url - and it needs checking out into the folder
"Website\Bin" relative to my working copy


I've added the following line to properties for the root of my working


.dll Website/Bin/LVGLibrary.dll


..and it fails.


Am I doing something wrong?
